    11 wrx ecu

    hi gentlemen im about to start modding my 11 wrx hatch and of course with mods come a tune

    I already have a tuner that's known to be good but with all these horror stories of blown ring lands on these cars are starting to put a scare in me

    now im keeping all the stock parts incase something does happen I can still use my warranty but my only concern is the fact that the dealer might b able (most likely) to recognize my presence in the ecu

    where can I find a different ecu for my wrx so that way I can keep mine un altered?

    From my own experience, once the tune is removed the dealer is not able to tell if it has been tuned. AS LONG AS IT'S REMOVED!!!

    Not exactly. There is evidence that the modern CANbus ECUs have a "reflash counter" that can determine the number of times the ECU has been flashed. While it doesn't provide direct evidence of flashing, the counter can provide indirect evidence that the ECU has been flashed.

    Yes and in my belief when it comes to giving away and engine for free that much evidence is enough

    They wouldn't replace my engine because they found spider webs in my factory down pipe lol. Never said anything about the ecu.
